Week 46


When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

Psalm 56:3

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20

For a relationship to be healthy, trust is essential. The evidence of being disciples of Jesus Christ is loving one another. Trust is the building blocks of love. How then can we strengthen trust in our relationships? Imagine a place where you can be honest with your doubts and fears without being silenced or judged!  Imagine a place where you can open your hearts without being fixed or shamed. Imagine a place where you can confess your messes knowing you will still be forgiven and accepted. That place is where trust is being built. Imagine that place being your church! When the Psalmist is afraid, he puts his trust in God. When we are afraid, can we come to our brothers and sisters in Christ for encouragement and support? When we can’t quite figure out how to get back on the right track, can we get  patience and grace from our Christian friends? We can trust Jesus because we are never without His presence in our lives. Jesus is with us when we do the right thing. Jesus is with us when we do the wrong thing. How are we, brothers and sisters in Christ, showing up in each other’s life? 

Jesus, thank you for we are never alone and You are trustworthy.  We pray in Your Name. Amen.
